livre anglophone broché souple petit format papier recyclé ancien (1993) présentant une quarantaine de contes d'Andersen; quelques rares illustrations par gravures n&b; cette édition bon marché et mal illustrée pourra servir d'exemplaire de secours pour les lectures du soir aux enfants pendant les vacances (parfait pour le camping); cependant, il ne remplacera pas un livre du soir grand format illustré en couleur pour marquer l'imagination des tout-petits
While I was very impressed how quickly the book arrived (within 2 days to Belgium)! I did not appreciate the translation as it contained far too many Christian references for my taste: almost all the stories had characters either praying for holy intervention or were praying to help them out of difficult situations. That in itself would have been fine - but given that we are a mixed religion household it was too one-sided, overtly relgious for us. We stopped reading the stories about 1/3 of the way through. I was very disappointed as I wanted my children to share in the stories that I so loved as a child. Will need to find a secular version.
